That touch of (artificial) mink“That touch of (artificial) mink”. The Christmas star diva covers its beauty with a noble winter fur. A very special appearance for a very special Christmas Star.
The gleaming spathaceous bracts of the lush Christmas star have a fine, red-white design. The Christmas star leaves have a filigree shape and nestle closely to the furry collar of the extravagant vase. An added decoration: glass balls in matt red and rust tones.
You can quickly make this far from everyday attire for the winter Christmas star diva yourself.
A strip of double-sided sticky tape is attached down the entire height of a simple glass container, around 30 cm high with a diameter of about 20 cm.
The container is tightly wrapped in a cut piece of artificial fur. The fur is pressed firmly against the container and the remainder that sticks out over the container is pressed loosely inwards.
A beige-coloured satin ribbon in two different widths is wound tightly around the fur vase. The ribbon is stapled tight with a stapler.
The satin bow is folded beforehand and attached to the lower satin ribbon so that it is not visible to the eye.
A crumpled piece of paper ensures that the Christmas star stands at the right height in the high vase.
The Christmas star pot is placed in a small plastic bag to prevent moisture leaking out and then placed in the prepared vase. The twigs are pushed together slightly, helping to make the plant look thicker and lusher.
